  • Drilling data management with server-based systems and proprietary software

    With a properly designed well information system, operators can improve the drilling process through seamless planning, scheduling, tracking and measuring performance. During 2008, Petron Industries Inc. introduced three advanced new tools to enhance the acquisition, management and dissemination of drilling information. RigFocus application software, RigBrain information manager and DrilNet/SP secure data portal are a trio of computer-based products that work together to promote efficiency in rig site data acquisition, data processing, report generation and communications, Fig. 1. The proprietary application software provides a user-friendly, intuitive interface for quick and easy access to drilling data. All data is displayed in familiar formats with pre-designed displays. No special computer skills are required. Additional integrated features include both audible and visible alarm capabilities, precise time- and depth-based data, charting of selectable parameters and flexible printing options. Users can access and browse numerical well data through a data pop-up window.
